Pure Hair is a leading hair salon in Christchurch, known not only for just their service, but also for how they work. They’re one of the first, and only few, salons that are focused on the impacts of an establishment on the environment.

They’re popular for using sustainable products that are both vegan and organic, as well as for shifting to more ergonomic alternatives like using paper instead of tin foil, and having refillable stations for items like shampoo and conditioner.

In addition, they also collect the hair cut from customers and donate it to Sustainable Salons that in turn, creates wigs for cancer organisations and other charitable causes. If you go to their shop, you’ll not only get your hair needs, but also be able to contribute to a more sustainable country.

Highlights

  • Gives you a healthy and beautiful hair
  • Notable for their eco-friendly practices
  • Donate leftover hair to cancer organisations

Customer Reviews

Katherine Orme posted her comment on Facebook:

“I walked in to get my hair cut – morning of a wedding- and walked out with my hair cut, my hair done! and my nails painted! All in the one appointment. Phillipa and her team went out of their way for me. Offered under their own initiative to have my nails painted while my hair was cut. A BRILLIANT time saver and good company! This salon has a friendly trendy vibe. I get the feeling nothing would be too hard for this team.”
